We are a lovely, big, uncomplicated and open-minded family. We have a big house in the middle of the beatifull Dolomites, in a little village. We have a very friendly and sweet dog and we all would love to practice and improve our english skills with a NATIVE english speaker.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Gardening, cooking, cleaning the house, hiking, climbing, swimming and the wide range of the beautifull Dolomites.
We have busy lives during the school term and our large house and large garden require more maintenance than we have time to fit in, so there are always plenty of help needed.
Tasks could include gardening, cooking, cleaning the house, vacuuming and pet care. But the most important is that you are a lovely english speaking volunteer who can help us to practice our english.
Volunteers would sleep in a large unfurnitured appartement (second floor). This would be shared with the oldest doughter, peaceful retreat, but bathroom, meals and socializing will all be in the house (first floor) with us. We only have one big bathroom, so this will obviously be shared with us. We will not allow smoking inside in any part of the house . We are happy to cook the evening & lunch meals each day. Our dog is considered a special family member, so it will be important that any volunteers are comfortable with the dog and treat him well at all times. We also have a young little cat and a sweet hamster, therefor if you love animals youre in the best place.
Val Gardena is an excellent place for summer and winter vacation. In summer you can go hiking or biking up to the numerous mountains. You can swim in several seas nearby, riding a horse or climbing. In winter you can find a lot of ski routes, you can ice-skate, sled and also hike. Also, there are a lot of great restaurants, shops and great views here.
We live in the middle of the beautifull Dolomites, sorrounded by a breathtaking ambience, in a small village, not far away from the next tiny city (Ortisei) which is perfect for accessing by car, public transports or bike. The Alpe di Siusi is a wide-open area of rolling upland pasture of unique beauty. Where nature is still very much nature. The pure and bracing, healthy mountain air induces a mood of quiet and calm. Time to relax. And enjoy. From spring to winter, from the wild flowers and walks to the superb skiing – every season has its charms and something special to offer and it's just half an hour from our house away.
